We have had some good and occasionally the odd bad meal here, the service is generally very good and attentive , the wine list not overly expensive and quite varied . The recent menu change may not have been for the best and choice is a bit more limited. The atmosphere is always pleasant and welcoming. One for a quick... More

The food is poor, I had a deep fried risotto starter that was stodgy and tasteless. My seak main course was tough and bland. I ordered a bottle of beer which came with a wet glass, the waiter dropped a steak knife inches from my feet. My girlfriends food was equally bland and poor. All the dishes had a pointless... More

Dear skifan01, We are genuinely sorry that you did not enjoy your visit to us. What you describe, as you will see from our other reviews, is well below the standard we set ourselves. Without knowing all of the details of your visit I have spoken to all staff and can only assure you that, if we had been aware... More

Went to HT's as a wedding anniversary celebration! It was pretty good but Horatio Todd's wasn't as up market as I thought it would be. Worked out cheaper than I'd anticipated so happy days. Set menu including a glass of wine for just under £15 - a good deal. Mains very good but desserts a bit bland. Well worth the... More

I like to sit by a window... I did do at this restaurant which was lovely but unfortunately the table by the windows are at 'coffee table' height which makes choice of food relative.(ie difficulty 'swooping' over one's meal between plate and mouth!) Staff were lovely and attentive, minor complaint... I did not like to be served a Gin &... More

Dear Tace W, Thank you for your kind comments in regards the staff and service. I understand your point about the table height in our bar area, however we try to offer a more relaxed experience at lunch time and do not serve a la carte meals there in the evening. I hope you do return and with that in... More

Went to Todd's with my partner to celebrate a birthday. It is always a good idea to book and we arrived about 10mins early but were made welcome and then asked if we would like to sit over as our table was already prepared and waiting.

Okay so I've been to Todd's quite a bit as I only live about a mins walk from the place. But I must admit its usually for the alcohol/cocktails and great atmosphere. I decided to head down on Sunday (02/11/14) for a spot of lunch, the place was packed (which is always a great sign as to how amazing the... More
